Astralis celebrate gla1ve's third anniversary

The Danish organisation and its roster have been looking back at the last few years of success since the addition of gla1ve.

Astralis under the leadership of Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander have grown into one of the strongest CS:GO teams of all time.

There was doubt when first signed to replace veteran Finn "karrigan" Andersen, but this was soon put aside as results helped Astralis become a playoff staple and claim 16 trophies so far.

2018 was the year of Astralis, with their unrivaled dominance run stunning the competitive scene into 2019. Top tier event absence saw them stumble, but gla1ve led Astralis back to the top of the rankings once again earlier this month as Team Liquid failed to maintain their own attempted era.

A victory at the ELEAGUE Major 2017 in Atlanta marked the first of four Major titles, with the previous three Major tournaments also won in the last three years for the Danish roster, overtaking Fnatic's previous record of three in total.

In his own Tweet, gla1ve says he is happy with what Astralis have achieved and is 'looking forward to more confetti in the future.'

His teammates Nicolai "device" Reedtz and Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth also shared their kind words for their in-game leader.

Coach Danny "zonic" Sørensen explained that he 'Couldn’t ask for a better captain for this team' and gla1ve exchanged compliments with the 1.6 legend.

Astralis will be in action for ECS Season 8 Europe Week 4 later today against BIG. The team will be looking to commemorate the special occasion with a win to qualify for the ECS Season 8 Finals in Arlington, Texas at the end of next month.
